What is BLOOD FLOW+
BLOOD FLOW+ from FutureYou contains CocoActiv, a highly potent cocoa flavanol extract. This patented ingredient is the only cocoa flavanol extract to be recognised for its ability to maintain the elasticity of blood vessels such as veins and arteries, which contributes to normal blood flow*.
Maintaining good blood flow and circulation is important. Doing so enables red blood cells to deliver oxygen to vital organs, such as the heart and brain. BLOOD FLOW+ combined with a healthy diet and exercise is an ideal way to help promote normal blood flow.
Flavanols are naturally occurring antioxidants found in various types of plants, including the cocoa plant.
Research has shown that flavanols assist the production of nitric oxide, which triggers the relaxation of blood vessels. This in turn contributes to normal blood flow
During the production of the active ingredient in BLOOD FLOW+, called CocoActiv, cocoa powder is extracted from cocoa beans with a high flavanol content.
In contrast during chocolate production, low flavanol cocoa beans are fermented before cocoa powder is extracted. This enhances the flavour of the cocoa powder but decreases the flavanol content.
To obtain the same amount of cocoa flavanols in a daily dose of BLOOD FLOW+ you would need to gorge on 400g of high-quality cocoa chocolate every day, which is equivalent to 2,429 calories and 329% of the daily recommended allowance of fat.
*The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200mg of cocoa flavanols.
